Coaches provide valuable information and suitable pathways from their clients needs and skills, their interests and qualifications, and their experience. A coach will conduct tests that assess a client's skill and ability and provide feedback and suggestions based upon test results. Coaches review a client's portfolio and suggest improvements as needed. They work with a client to set goals and revisit those goals or revise as needed once goals have been achieved. Coaches need a minimum bachelor’s degree in and certification to coach in their area of expertise.
